lived in these states used the most sad words in their tweets like mad, hate, no, and jail. by the way, the study's author says the list might be a bit skewed. people living in these states use the most swear words which counted towards their sad count. i don't believe the study. today is the same day that, of course, your tweets, got even shorter. instead of using 140 characters, you will have to figure out how to say what you need to say in just 117 if you have a link to your tweet. you know how twitter automatically shortens the link, twitter has changed the way it does that. it now takes up more space. let me take a look at what is trending around the world in new york. a russian billionaire turning some heads with this giant luxury yacht. you have to checks this thing out. the biggest private yacht on earth. the length of two foot fields. if you want to see it, it's docked on new york's west side. and it costs more than new york city penthouse. it's $1.5 billion. here is why it's so expensive. it has got, yep, 30 large cabins, nine decks, two helipads to land the private helicopte

to their $20 billion beer merger. warren buffett announced it's buying food giant heinz. and if u.s. regulators allow it, usair will take over bankrupt american airlines creating the world's biggest airline in the process. that deal is good for investors, but passengers worry airfares will shoot up as competition disapears. but take a look at this. just after airline deregulation came into effect, there were 20 major airlines in the united states. by 1990, there were only 12 major airlines in operation. today just seven and with "uss -- usair and american merging we'll be down six. usair and american don't have a lot of overlapping routes or hubs. in the end, there will only be about out routes out of the 9,000 or so that will be served by one airline. they may see fares go up. but look at this. since 1979, prices for an average domestic economy airfare have dropped from $579 then to $365 now, though they have started to tick up a little bit lately. so much for that myth that merging airlines causes prices to go up. thanks for watching this week. find me on facebook at facebook.com/ali velshi.
